RICHMOND, Va. — Meet Andrew! If he had his choice, he would run to wherever he needed to be and then just wait for you to catch up.

He has a lot of energy and is very athletic.

He enjoys going to art museums and learning new things.

Andrew is a strong student and thrives in an academic setting.

He’s very social and is well-liked by his teachers and peers.

Andrew loves to laugh and can quote Napoleon Dynamite for hours.

Andrew has recently learned how to string his guitar and has been working on learning basic chords.

He enjoys music of all types, but his absolute favorite is rap music.

He enjoys singing along to his favorite songs in the car while adding in his own unique dance moves.

The idea of adoption is exciting to him, and he is hoping to be involved in the process of finding his forever family.

Andrew would do best in a single-parent male home or in a two-parent home with a strong father figure.

Ideally, he would be the youngest child in the home.

Andrew does have a couple of people from his past with whom he keeps in touch, and hopes his new family would be supportive of these healthy relationships.

He’s ready to meet his adoptive family and “get this show on the road.”

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts -The Deborah J Johnston Foundation celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other 830 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent (s) and to see available children click here.
